Bought this in '73. My first good guitar. Still have it, still gig it occasionally -
The oldest guitar presently in my possession is an AmStd Tele ash body from 1997. It now has hot Zhangbucker pickups and a black guard. My Princeton Reverb Amp, however, has been with me since 1964 or '65.
I love Fitzgerald's and I am there every week now hosting the Open Mic. If you happen to come into town on Jan 7 one of my bands (doing Roy Orbison songs) has a gig there. Come out and hang. The other band in the show is also very good.
Thanks for the invite! Sounds like a good time...lots of special memories in that place.
My 1974 tele custom delux but the only reason it sounds so good is because it has an old Jason Lollar hand wound 51 wannabe pickup in the rear position
Brand new 2004 USA Hardtail Strat. I bought it new. Maple neck. Burst. Love it. Always have. Changed out pups and installed CS pups. Upgraded to pearloid pick guard. Love love love it.
JV series Squier Strat, Ovation Pinnacle series electro acoustic, '89 Strat Plus are my three oldest, all bought new by me, all subsequently modded, the three that have sentimental as well as utility value and probably the ones I'd sell last if times were really hard....
I have an old Harmony acoustic that I've had since the early 60s.
I NEED pics!!!
I purchased a Lyle ES-335-looking guitar in 1968 along with a Supro 16T amp. Still have them. Both look like new even after 49 years of touring, gigging and kids. It's on the right.
The one I'm playing below, since some 20-30 years ago I swapped every guitar I owned for it
Posted this refinish on another thread, but this is my first, from 23 years ago
That's a beauty, but how do you tune that sucker?
There's no need to. As long as I don't put any strings...
An old POS Washburn acoustic that's damn near impossible to tune. I've been threatening to smash it for the longest time, but I never do.
That would be my Gibson L6s. Bought it new in high school around 1976. Hardly ever play it as I have become to accustomed to fender necks. But I pulled it out of the case and it was in tune. Lots of sentimental value so it will be kept forever.
Got my 68 thinline used in 73 for $175.
in the 80's at Berklee
90's with old band shirt from the 70's
Old and gray now
The guitar I've had the longest is my MIM 60th Anniversary Strat in blizzard pearl. I bought it used (with all the shrinkwrap stuff on the pickguard and back cavity cover) in 2007. Great guitar. The finish is a little flashy for my tastes, but it photographs as white more often than not.
Soul Bro. Got the same one, but in '96. Bought it in Atlanta.
